If you have epinephrine auto-injectors in your home, they may not have weathered the recent freezing temperatures in Texas.

Epinephrine must be stored at 20-25C (68-77F). Excursions allow storage of 15-30C (59-86F).

If your house had no power and you feel your personal (or family member’s) epinephrine auto-injector was below 59 degrees for 24 hours or more, please contact the dispensing pharmacy for next steps.
